Little Free Library

My son Garrett made 4 Little Free Libraries for his Eagle Scout Service Project.  He had lots of help building, assembling, and installing them.  His first LFL went into a rural town in MT.  We had a ribbon cutting ceremony with a speech, chocolate treats, & bookmarks to color. 

The LFL was cut using these plans modified to 17x17x20 to 27 (cut at a 90* angle). LFL instructions
We cut almost 2 LFL's out of one sheet of plywood.  We cut the roofs out of a scrap piece of plywood.  We are thrilled with how the LFL turned out.

Large Rose x-stitch

I made this large cross stitch of a rose from a large canvas.  I really like how it turned out.
I made an extra large printout of a cross stitch pattern and poked holes with a large needle into every spot that thread would go through.  I then began stitching with my embroidery thread. 

Story Vignette

I love the saying "Every family has a story...welcome to ours"  and I also love barn quilts.  Really liking this vignette.

Winter Vignette

I found this toboggan at a thrift store and fell in love with it as soon as I saw it.  I cut out the snowflakes with a jigsaw and painted them white.  Love the look of  this.
